Writing to the newspapers

Local newspapers are influential, especially here on the Northern Neck where much of our population is not of the age to be addicted to Facebook, Twitter, and other social media — a LOT of people here still read the local newspapers.  For this reason, we need to have an Indivisible presence in every edition of our local papers.

There are several ways to put information in local papers:

  • Letters to the editor
  • Op-ed pieces
  • Opinion pieces

You do not have to be a journalism major,  an accomplished writer, or a Pulitzer winner.   Here are articles with tips about writing items for newspapers as well as a page that lists contact information for our local and regional papers.
